  1. good morning to all hope everyone was able to enjoy this weekend i was thinking of washing off some dust from my lures specifically launching from oswego or mexico any info will be greatly appreciated on the conditions thanks tight-lines and screaming drags to all !
  2. hey fellow members , Im looking to save some wear and tear on trailering my Grady white from Oneonta once the lake gets hot and was wondering if anyone would know where i could leave my rig thats secure and convenient to the mexico ramp. thanks in advance for any info
  3. thanks Whaler hope i didn't hijack your thread Badddad
  4. hey Whaler do lean towards the flouro for stealth or are there other benefits?
  5. i often wondered if anyone ever kept track of hookup ratios using snubbers vs no snubber
  6. Baddad we've been using the trilene big game fmono for our leaders and mainlines without issue its pretty inexpensive and seems to take abrasion pretty well so it can be changed out often if needed we found when connecting it to the wire it was beneficial to have that stretch especially due to the fact the wire dosent stretch and with flouro it can be brittle at inopportune times if you know what i mean
  7. i went with a sure flow 70 psi its been 2 years no issues just make sure at the end of the season run it dry so it wont freeze
  8. B O A T break out another thousand lol
  9. so before stepping up to a Grady white with hydraulics my last setup was 19.5 foot great lakes special sea nymph which also had a cable steering system so i put the intellisteer which replaces the steering helm under the dash and you connect your steering cable directly into it and attach your steering wheel was easy half hour job no gps but definitely was somewhere between the expense of the gps and manual it was like $700
  10. oh i forgot to add i control the main motor with the autopilot and the kicker via ez steer so if you have to use the main motor for the trolling you can still steer if you decide to go with an autopilot
  11. hey baddad1 ive been watching the thread and wanted to add my 2 cents i struggled with the decision of autopilot remote controls etc and resolved my issue.with the following we usually fish 2 guys in the boat so someone at the wheel is sometimes not possible setting lines netting fish etc so i went with the raymarine ev1 autopilot and im very happy as far as the kicker i have a 15 hp honda that i installed the trollmaster remote throttle control i have a cable throttle control but just couldn't ever find the sweet spot and found myself constantly adjusting pia the finite adjustment to the throttle really works well with the trollmaster from anywhere in the boat good luck !
  12. x2 with whaler the slide divers are definitely a more stealthy approach and eliminates the need for hand lining as needed when a fixed diver is used. We run them on braid with a length of rod leader the beauty of the slide is your leader from the diver is completely adjustable to get it away from your presentation good luck
  13. I like your ingenuity and the results lol im going to try it thanks for sharing
